Leverage iGaming talent in new markets

iGaming – online gambling and casino games – is expanding globally, and the need for top legal talent to navigate new and complex regulations and ensure iGaming is compliant has become a top priority. But just as with gaming tech talent, legal talent with the necessary knowledge and expertise in gaming laws is in short supply. Latin America is one of iGaming’s high growth markets, and countries like Brazil, Argentina and Mexico have highly developed legal markets that can be leveraged for local expertise. As iGaming continues to grow globally, hiring global remote talent helps alleviate existing shortages of gaming specialists and developers, as well as ensuring remote support teams are available around the clock and around the world.

Hire budget-friendly gaming industry talent

Where can you find top game developers?

Don't get lost on a side quest trying to find the best developers. WorkMotion’s Country Explorer tool recommends the top three countries where you should look for talent based on your exact hiring requirements. You can select search parameters including factors like budget, English proficiency, level of education, labour laws and more.

Physical location is no longer the barrier it once was, so take the opportunity to recruit talent within a wider geographical lens - greatly increasing your chances of reaching your endgame and finding the game developer talent you need.


Romania is in the top five countries worldwide for game developer talent, with salaries for the same role 74% less than the average salary in the top 25 GDP countries.
